Ahi, dispietata morte!
Ahi, crudel vita!
L’una m'ha posto in doglia
E mie speranze acerbament’ha spente:
L’altra mi tien qua giù contra mia voglia
E lei che se n’è gita seguir non posso
Ch’ella no’l consente:
Ma pur ognor presente
Nel mezzo del mio cor madonna siede
E qual è la mia vita ella se'l vede.
